In 2006, Barack Obama won a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album for the audio book edition of his best-selling book 'Dreams from My Father'. Reading this book converted me from being a Hillary Clinton supporter to a Barack Obama supporter in the 2008 presidential primaries. Great book.
Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance by Barack Obama. In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father, a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man, has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey.
